# How to create a minimal working example for verbatim use in macro definition with cprotect?

cprotect can be used to use verbatim in a macro definition according to the package specification. Just like everything else in the world that doesn't provide an example it doesn't work in real life and therefore I want/have to do that job myself. Why does

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{cprotect}
\usepackage{fancyvrb}

\begin{document}

\bla
\end{document}

See the trick explained at the end of section 1 in the manual.

• Great! Thanks a lot! The formulation "just write \cprotect\cs or \cprotect{\cs} instead of \cs" is ridiculous and even with the prepending half sentence "if you want {<arg1> } to contain verbatim". It upsets me when so much brilliance and effort is put into the package and then documentation basically abandoned. – Karl Richter Dec 1 '14 at 17:37
